CAMPBELL CLINIC PROVIDES FREE FOOT CARE AT MEMPHIS UNION MISSION

Nearly 150 men and women in the Memphis community received free foot and nail care from Campbell Clinic physicians as part of the orthopaedic clinic's annual Soles4Souls event, held at the Memphis Union Mission's Opportunity Center in association with the national program, Our Hearts to Your Soles.

Shoes were provided by Red Wing Shoes and additional support was provided by clinical fellows, orthopaedic residents, research nurses and employees from The Campbell Foundation, plus Campbell Clinic physician assistants and medical students from the University of Tennessee Health Science Center. Campbell Clinic and Campbell Foundation employees collected and donated more than 500 pairs of socks for this year’s effort from a "Socktober" drive earlier this fall.

The Our Hearts to Your Soles program was founded in 2004 by high school student Matthew Conti and his father Dr. Stephen Conti, an orthopaedic surgeon at Allegheny General Hospital near Pittsburgh. Supporters of the program believe that proper foot health is important to an overall health maintenance program.
